Best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022

Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 picks for women’s clothing, shoes, accessories, and beauty.

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (commonly referred to as NSale) highlights the fall’s must-have items for the upcoming season at a discount for a limited time. The sale opens to cardholders on July 6, 2022, and opens to the public on July 15, 2022. For most shopping the event, the NSale is an opportunity to purchase must-have higher price staples at a reduced price (e.g. Spanx faux leather leggings, Hunter rain boots, Kate Spade crossbody, and more) or the chance to stock up on everyday items (e.g., Anastasia brow kit, NARS afterglow lip balm, Kate Spade stud earrings, etc.). Not sure where to start when it comes to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? Check out five tips on how to shop for the NSale.

Women’s Clothing

The NSale has two staples every woman needs in their life for colder months. Madewell’s oversize cardigan sweater is a must-have for any cardigan lover. I’ve had my pink Madewell cardigan for three years and is regularly worn from fall through spring months. The Madewell women’s cardigan goes great with Spanx faux leather leggings (purchased in 2017). To round out my clothing selections, I would recommend checking out any winter coats or specifically The Northface down parka. You cannot go wrong with a long North Face winter coat — especially for those in colder states during winter.

Women’s Shoes

You can’t go wrong with Hunter tall rain boots which can be used year-round. Before I invested in proper winter boots I used my tall Hunter boots with thick socks to get me through cold midwest winters. If you are in the market for a good running shoe, I would recommend checking out the Nike Free RN 5.0 2021 running shoe for a comfortable and lightweight shoe. Steve Madden is not disappointing with their pointed-toe mule.

Women’s Accessories

Bombas socks are one of the softest, most comfortable pairs of socks I own! Bombas has a one-for-one model — for every one pair purchased, one pair is donated — with over 5,000,000 pairs donated. At $24.90 for a 3-pack — originally $49 — Bombas socks are a great stocking stuffer for the upcoming holidays.

Women’s Jewelry & Handbags

An everyday staple to save money on during the NSale is Kate Spade earrings and bags. From their core three-prong stud earring (great for everyday to evening wear) to their glittery earring studs for extra sparkle. For those daring pop of color for their purse, Kate Spade’s leather crossbody bag will be timeless — even in green! The NSale also features additional Kate Spade items at a reduced price.

Beauty Exclusives

The one thing you consider look at during the sale should be the luxury beauty products. Stock up on makeup essentials like Anastassia brow kit, Charlotte Tillbury pillow talk lip set, and Hourglass veil essentials set. Bobbi Brown’s eyeshadow palettes are underrated and great for travel.

The Charlotte Tillbury pillow talk blush and highlight set should be purchased immediately for any blush/cheek makeup enthusiast and the NARS afterglow lip trio will leave your lips soft with a flush of color. If you are in the market for a new shampoo and conditioner (plus an add-on treatment) to make your hair soft check out Drybar’s Cure Liqueur™ Set. I've been using Drybar’s Cure Liqueur™'s add-on restorative pre-shampoo treatment oil (and shampoo) since fall of 2021 and my hair has never fealt better!


pro tip:

Use T3’s brush set to help you achieve the perfect blowout at home.
